03:55 GizmagRivian s 750-hp electric camping pickup drives, cooks and lives on pure battery power


The idea of overlanding in an electric vehicle, meandering miles and miles off the electrical grid for days on end, has so far been largely unfathomable, a bit terrifying, even. But we've seen that it's not impossible, and now electric truck startup Rivian is hoping to make it more mainstream. Less than a year after turning heads with an LA Auto Show double debut, it made the trip to Overland Expo West to show how electric power can be a boon rather than bane for overland travel. Its all-electric pickup camper offers an estimated 400 miles (644 km) of range, a roof-top tent and an electric kitchen.

Drug promiscuity and polypharmacology are much discussed topics in pharmaceutical research. Drug repositioning applies established drugs to new disease indications with increasing success. As polypharmacology, defined a drug's ability to bind to several targets but due to possible side effects, this feature is not taken into consideration. Thus, the pharmaceutical industry focused on the development of highly selective single-target drugs. Nowadays after lot of researches, it is clear that polypharmacology is important for the efficacy of drugs. There are side effects but on the other hand, this gives the opportunity to uncover new uses for already known drugs and especially for complex diseases. Thus, it is clear that there are two sides of the same coin. There are several approaches to discover new drugs targets, as analysis of genome wide association, gene expression data and networks,

In distributional reinforcement learning (RL), the estimated distribution of value function models both the parametric and intrinsic uncertainties. We propose a novel and efficient exploration method for deep RL that has two components. The first is a decaying schedule to suppress the intrinsic uncertainty. The second is an exploration bonus calculated from the upper quantiles of the learned distribution. In Atari 2600 games, our method outperforms QR-DQN in 12 out of 14 hard games (achieving 483 \% average gain across 49 games in cumulative rewards over QR-DQN with a big win in Venture). We also compared our algorithm with QR-DQN in a challenging 3D driving simulator (CARLA). Results show that our algorithm achieves near-optimal safety rewards twice faster than QRDQN.
